Ina Coolbrith & Friends
Sunday, November 12 @ 10 a.m.
Leader:
 Aleta George
Start: Cragmont Rock Park
Join Aleta George, author of Ina Coolbrith: The Bittersweet Song of California’s First Poet Laureate, on a four-mile loop walk on the roads and pathways named for some of the Bay Area’s literary pioneers.  A highlight will be the stairway that BPWA renamed in Coolbrith's honor, where the Berkeley Historical Society and the Berkeley Historical Plaque Project have installed an informational plaque on Coolbrith. Aleta developed this route during her frequent walks when she was writing her book. On the walk, Aleta will tell stories about Coolbrith and her colleagues Bret HarteJoaquin Miller, and Charles Keeler. This walk has stairs and some steep streets.
